Vicente DeLeon passed away December 28, 2020 at a hospital in Boise, he was born on July 8, 1944 in Acatic, Mexico to Sergio Cleofas and Juana Anaya García.
Vicente later moved to Ensenada, Mexico where he met and married the love of his life, Silvia. Shortly after having their first child they moved to California and then came to settle in Emmett, Idaho in 1975. While in Emmett, Vicente started working for a little private winery, Ste. Chappelle. Ste. Chappelle expanded to the Caldwell area where Vicente moved his family as well. In 1987 Vicente moved his family back to Emmett and worked at IBP where he retired. Retiring was the best thing for him as he was able to spend more time with his family and the people he loved. His hobbies included gardening, fishing, building things, watching sports, and making people laugh, he even enjoyed Facebook and TikTok. He loved to travel anywhere. His favorite place was any casino.

He leaves behind his legacy through his wife Silva, and his children: Vince, Sergio, Ernesto, Memo, Silvia, Emmanuella, Vanessa, Ramon, Grisel, Elena and Adriana along with 33 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
Vicente will always hold a special place in his grandchildren’s lives with the things he would say.
* “Can I have your new baby in exchange for my hummer?”
* “Quien es la mas pretty tu o tu mama?”
* “Puro Funnies”
* “Quien es mi chingona?”
We will forever miss his teasing, his great love, and his Back to the Future laugh. He was an incredibly enthusiastic, kind, loving, caring, determined, stubborn man who got great pleasure from helping others. He will be forever in our hearts; may he rest in peace. We love you El Chingón!
